HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover — 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on Highways 
and Bridges. 

In January and February, I built a sidewalk through the 
hollow south of the Beard place, on Main street. Nearly 
1000 feet was gravelled on Porter street, east of the Bailey 
farm. Later we finished this east on Main street. 

Early in March we had a severe washout caused by the 
overflow of Roger's Brook at Brook street. This, and other 
washouts on different streets, required the work of several 
days to make right. March 18, we commenced work on the 
West Parish sidewalk, beginning at the parsonage and we 
finished it as far as Buchan's corner, with the exception of 
the hollow, from Williamson's to the Lawson gravel bank. 
This remaining portion will require a retaining wall about 5 
feet high, taking 200 perch of stone. The estimated cost of 
stone and labor is $400. 

The following roads were repaired, using the road machine : 
From the Luscomb place to the Lawrence line. From Bar- 
nard's corner to Drisko's. From Moody's corner to the Vale. 
From Mr. Shaw's across the plains to the Weld place and to 
the Wilmington line. From the foot of Job Abbott's hill to 
Woburn street. River street to the Wilmington line. From 
North Andover line on Highland road to Salem street. 
From Highland Road past the Roach place to Nathan F. Ab- 
bott's corner. Last year I repaired with the machine more 
than one-half of the outlying districts intending to finish 
them this year had I the opportunity. The appropriation for 
repairs was cut down $1000, so the plan for this year could 
not be fulfilled. I think this is a mistake, for if the remain- 
ing portion could have been done this year, afterwards four 
horses could do the work of six, provided the scraping in 



48 

each section was done every other year. The road machine 
keeps the gutters clean, consequently severe storms do not 
cause any washouts where the road is so repaired. The gut- 
ters had their usual cleaning and stones were raked as often 
as needed. 

On Lowell street we gravelled from Cutler's hill past the 
Hunt place. From the foot of Trow's hill to the top of the 
hill west of Ward's. Also we gravelled the hill near Peter 
Smith's. The entire length of Stevens street. From the 
West church to Cunningham's. The entire length of Brook 
street. On School street we began near Mr. Leach's, grav- 
elling what was not macadamized south to the depot. On 
High street we repaired from Elm street nearly to Mr. Bliss's. 
We began near the fountain at James Abbott's, gravelling as 
far as the guide boards. 

In Ballardvale we gravelled a third of a mile north of Dris- 
ko's. From Moody's corner to Palmer's. On River street, 
Tewksbury street, Chester street and on the plains. This 
was done by the pair of horses kept at the vale and the town 
receives considerable praise for the neat and faithful work of 
their driver, Mr. Haggerty. A catch basin was put in near 
John Dearborn's and over 200 feet of 10 inch pipe was laid 
underground leading into Clarke's brook. This was a long 
needed want. A strip of macadam road, 701 feet long was 
built on Lowell street near the West Cemetery. In Frye 
Village, near the house of George Ward, 748 feet was laid 
toward the east. 1 built 1046 feet down Essex street from 
the electric car track at the square toward the west. On 
Main street we began at the terminus of the State Highway 
lay out, building 1300 feet toward town. In Abbott Village, 
230 feet was built opposite the house of Mr. Craig on Miner- 
al st:eet. The money was spent, so this last was left unfin- 
ished. A catch basin and 50 feet of pipe will complete the 
job. In all, this makes a little over 4000 feet of macadam 
road built this year. 

I repaired Park street from the engine house past Bartlet 



49 

street, making it as good as new. The culvert there was 
taken up and cleaned out. It was built of stone 2 1-2 feet 
square. The south end joins the land purchased by Mr. 
Howell and he laid 192 feet of 8 inch pipe entering it into 
Roger's Brook. This failed to carry off the water so in or- 
der to make it right I have taken the 8 inch pipe out and put 
in 12 inch at the cost of $85. This same condition of drain- 
age is found in other parts cf town : on Main street near Mr. 
George Foster's and near Dr. Leitch's. Here, from an 18 inch 
culvert a small pipe was laid entering the brook that runs 
under School street near Mrs. Blunt's. This has caused 
quite a lot of trouble to neighboring cellars, and always will 
until a larger pipe is laid to take the overflow. Now it seems 
to me that when a man covers over a natural waterway, he 
ought to be compelled to put in a pipe of ample dimensions 
to carry all the flow of water. A 12 inch culvert was put in 
across Lowell street, west of Buchan's road. 

I repaired the driveway of Mrs. Chase at Haggett's Pond, 
she bearing the expense. 

Some old junk has been sold and the dealer settled with 
the town treasurer. 

We have laid concrere sidewalks as follows: 459 yards on 
south side of Central street, from Campion's corner across 
Chestnut street, connecting it with the concrete at Tyer's 
corner ; 370 yards on the north side of Central street ; 341 
yards on Locke street ; 334 yards on Chestnut street ; 66 2-3 
yards on Morton street ; 269 yards on west side of School 
street; a crossing from the Tyer residence to the Episcopal 
church. Gutters were concreted near Judge Bell's on Bart- 
let street, 40 yards ; 236 yards on Phillips street ; 56 yards 
on Main street at the foot of Harding street. Repairs were 
made on the old concrete walks and gutters where needed. 
The concrete sidewalks were built under the betterment act 
which necessitates being laid out by the selectmen. On Main 
street I built a concrete walk from the brick walk near 
Wakefield's to Yalpey's corner, 49 yards. The new street 



50 

laid out by the selectmen from Walnut avenue to Carmel 
Woods, 50 feet wide, has been completed with a sidewalk on 
each side. A 12 inch pipe was put in underground through 
the hollow. The full amount has been expended and the 
road finished with the exception of a pebble near the Grout 
residence. It is estimated that it will cost 1125 to remove 
this. I think it will be cheaper to put an electric light on top 
of it and let it remain there. 

At Haggett's Pond, 720 feet of railing was built and paint- 
ed between Dixon's corner and the depot. New rails were 
placed on Mineral street, south of the gravel pit. A guard 
picket fence has been put on both sides of the river bridge 
at Frye Village. In Ballarclvale, 100 feet of railing was 
built on Chester street and 752 feet on the swamp road near 
Lowell Junction. These ought to be painted this spring. 
All old rails received a new coat of paint. 

Roger's Brook has been cleaned out. In one place we got 
nearly a load of grape baskets. The steam roller has been 
used on all the macadam road built during the past few years 
on the River Road and at Haggett's Pond, and it resurfaced 
them nicely. We received $40 from the State Highway 
Commission, $80 from Lawrence Gas Co., $285 from Loring 
Farnum, $5 from Michael Stack for use of roller. In build- 
ing a piece of macadam under the old system, we never could 
get enough stone dust to surface the road. With the aid of 
the steam roller we have a surplus left at the springs. Of 
this I have sold 25 tons to Loring Farnum for $30 ; to Prof. 
Smith loads amounting to $9; $9 worth to Prof. Taylor; to 
Peter D. Smith and Henry Barnard, each $3. We also did 
work amounting to $75 for the Smith & Dove Co., which we 
should not have done if we had not owned the steam roller. 
This makes the earnings of the roller outside our own town 
work over $500. I stated at town meeting that the roller 
was the best plow team on the top of the earth. I am of the 
same opinion today, for we plowed 1300 feet of road and it 
never balked once.

Ever since the frost came out of the ground in the spring, 
the Lawrence Gas Co., has had from 60 to 107 men at work 
digging up the streets to put in gas pipes. The New Eng- 
land Telegraph and Telephone Co., have left a ridge from 
Tewksbury to the Lawrence line. With these difficulties to 
contend with it has been rather hard to keep the water where 
it belongs and it will be some time before the ridges settle 
back into place. 

I have been asked why the town teams were not kept at 
work later in the season. The money was all spent, the 
town treasurer refused to pay any more bills and the town 
counsel advised me to stop short. Then again, there was 
$1000 less on repairs and $1000 less on macadam than in 
either of the two previous years. We did not receive any 
appropriation from the State Highway Commission. This 
was $5000 in each of the two previous years. I think this 
explanation ought to be satisfactory.

OVERSEERS OF POOR 



The town is fortunate in still retaining the services of Mr. 
and Mrs. Burnham. The house is in good condition. As 
you will see on Page fourteen of the inmates are over 
sixty years of age, which necessitates on the part of Mrs. 
Burnham a great deal of care and attention. Some of these 
old. people are bed-ridden and almost entirely helpless. 
These unfortunate ones look on Mrs. Burnham as their best 
friend. The house every year receives a visit from the State 
Inspectors, and in the printed report of the State Board of 
Charities the Andover Almshouse stands second to none in 
the condition of the house and the care of the patients. The 
expense is only $1.69 per week for each inmate and the in- 
mates are well clothed and fed, and with Mr. Burnham's 
good management the receipts from the farm are $3016.32. 

We invite the people of the town, both men and women, 
to visit the Almshouse and note its condition and the pro- 
vision made for the care and comfort of the inmates.

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



The Committee of Spring Grove Cemetery herewith sub- 
mit their report of the receipts and expenditures for the year 
ending January, 1902. 

The regular work has been performed in the matter of 
keeping the grounds in proper condition and new lots have 
been plotted for burial purposes. 

As many of the lots are not provided with deposits, the in- 
come therefrom to be used for the perpetual care of said lots, 
and as the appropriation made by the town should not be ap- 
plied to private lots, your committee would suggest that own- 
ers of lots avail themselves of the statute provision in regard 
to deposits of funds for the care of cemetery lots. This 
seems advisable, as families move from town and the burial 
places of friends and relatives are neglected. Sunken ground, 
growing weeds and fallen headstones are unpleasant sights in 
a cemetery and there are several notable examples of this 
neglect in the Spring Grove Cemetery. Your committee de- 
sires to concrete gutters and waterways in the cemetery and 
contemplates the building of a stone bridge over Central Av- 
enue, connecting the east with the west plotted ground. 

As there is much work to be done in the cemetery in the 
matter of new walks, etc., your committee would ask for the 
usual appropriation of $300, and the proceeds of sale of lots 
for the care of the cemetery for the coming year.

In order to take the proper care of the unexpected quan-

amount overdrawn. 

Eighty dollars and fifty cents was expended on Carmel 
Woods for cutting brush, raking leaves, clearing up and 
burning same, and making some repairs on the driveway.

AUDITORS' CERTIFICATE 



We have examined the accounts of the several Town 
Officers and find them correctly cast, with vouchers for all 
payments, except that eight receipts were missing or had not 
been returned up to the time of our examination. As these 
bills were all recorded on the books of the Auditors, Select- 
men and Treasurer, the correctness of the accounts is not in 
the least affected. 

The Town Treasurer has on deposit in the Andover 
National Bank and cash on hand $1,397.90. Also $40.00 to 
the credit of the Water Loan and $8,784.12 to the credit of 
the Sewer Loan.

MEMORIAL HALL 



THIRTIETH ANNUAL REPORT OF 
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The statistical report of the Librarian may be found on 
another page, and that of the Superintendent of the Cornell 
Art Collection is given below : — 

Number of visitors : adults, 1096 ; children, 2484 ; 
total, 3580 ; average daily attendance, 35. The collec- 
tion of stereoscopic views has been increased by the gift 
of fifty pictures from Miss Agnes Park. These views, 
aside from being used in the Art Room, have been 
loaned, in limited numbers, to teachers in the higher 
grades of the public schools and in the Punchard School, 
for use in their classes. 

JULIA E. TWICHBLL. 



Little need be added to these reports to indicate the con- 
stant and beneficent usefulness of the Memorial Hall Library 
in its different departments — circulation of books, reading 
room, reference room, art room. No one feature has been 
more satisfactory than the enthusiastic interest taken by 
children and youth in the examination of the stereoscopic 
views, both in the Art Room, and as shown them in their 
class-rooms. One item in the Superintendent's report above 
may suggest to citizens to add to the stereoscopic collection 
such domestic or foreign views as they have no further use 
for in their homes. 



122 

It is also suggested that published discourses, together 
with printed matter or written records of any kind, bearing 
on the earlier or later history of the town, might properly be 
sent to the Library for careful preservation. All such ma- 
terial will be invaluable in years to come.- 

The attention of patrons of the Library is called to the op- 
portunity of quiet examination of works of reference, in vari- 
ous departments, in the Cornell Reference Room. To these 
are now added the monthly Cumulative Book Index, and 
Poole's Index to Periodical Literature, the several annual 
volumes of which have been consolidated into one. 

The number of books purchased during the past two years 
has fallen below the usual average on account of the neces- 
sity of using a part of the fund in printing the new cata- 
logue. The funds available for the purchase of books are at 
best insufficient to secure many works which the Trustees 
would gladly add to the list. It will be remembered, too, 
that a considerable sum is spent every year in replacing the 
books worn out by circulation.

PUNCHARD FREE SCHOOL 



Report of Special Town Committee 



To the Citizens of the Town of Andover: 

At the last annual town meeting it was voted that a com- 
mittee of five be chosen to consider the high school 
question in Andover, said Committee to consult with the 
Trustees of the Punchard Free School regarding the same 
and make a report and recommendations at the next annual 
meeting and that this committee be authorized to expend, 
not more than two hundred dollars, for legal advice 
in the matter. It was also voted that the following persons 
serve as that committee: John L. Brewster, T. Frank Pratt, 
George Ripley, George T. Eaton, Colver J. Stone. 

In accordance with the above vote your committee met 
and organized March 21st, 1901. The reasons for the ap- 
pointment of your committee and the questions upon which 
they were to report and make recommendations, are dis- 
cussed and fully set forth in the opinion of Judge Ward well 
and in the report of the sub-committee, which report and 
opinion are herewith presented in full and made a part of 
this report. 

Your committee held several meetings at which they very 
carefully examined and discussed the different plans under 
which numerous schools were working, whose relations with 
the Town in which they were located were at all similar to 
those existing between the Punchard Free School and the 
Town of Andover. In the opinion of your Committee no 
one of these plans was feasible ; hence more than to allude 
to them in this report would be neither wise nor profitable. 



133 

At a joint meeting of the Punchard Trustees and your 
committee ot five a sub-committee was appointed to take 
legal advice in their consideration of the relations between 
the Punchard Free School and the Town of Andover. The 
committee consulted Judge Henry Wardwell of Salem and 
submitted a report to the joint committee containing a plan 
based upon the opinion received from Judge Wardwell. 
This report was accepted by the joint Committee. 

Your committee submit Judge Wardwell's findings and 
the report of the sub-committee to the voters of the Town 
with confidence that the plan suggested therein with such 
modification of details as may be deemed wise by the Town 
School Committee and the trustees of the Punchard Fund 
will furnish to the Town all the educational facilities of a 
permanent and well equipped High School. 

The following is the opinion of Judge Henry Wardwell of 
Salem : 

To Mr. John L. Brewster ', Chairman of Committee of Town 
of Andover : 

You ask my opinion as to the powers of the Town and 
the Trustees of the Punchard Free School in reference to 
making arrangements for the maintenance of a high school. 
The power of the Town to appropriate money for such a 
school is limited by the Provisions of the 18th Article of 
amendment in the Constitution which requires that " all 
moneys raised by taxation in the Towns and Cities for the 
support of Public Schools shall be applied to and expended 
in no other school than those which are conducted according 
to law under the order and superintendence of the authori- 
ties of the Town or City in which the money is to be ex- 
pended." 

The will of Benjamin H. Punchard proved in 1850 gave 
fifty thousand dollars (150,000) to the Town of Andover 
" for the purpose of founding a free school." This bequest 
is in the 6th clause of the will which is as follows: — "The 



134 

residue of my property, not exceeding fifty thousand dollars 
I give and bequeath to the Town ofAndover for the pur- 
pose of founding a free school, forty thousand dollars for a 
permanent fund for the support of said school and ten 
thousand dollars for the necessary buildings, etc. providing 
that at my decease, if there should not be the said amount 
of fifty thousand dollars after paying the amounts first 
devised, then the said balance to be kept at interest till 
the amount is fifty thousand dollars. Said school shall 
be under the direction of eight trustees of whom the 
rector of Christ's church to be one, also the Ministers of the 
South Parish and West Parish, Congregational societies to be 
members also, the remaining five to be chosen by the inhabi- 
tants of Andover in Town Meeting to serve for three years, 
two of whom to be taken from Christ Church Parish, two 
from the South Parish Society and one from the West Parish 
Society : said school to be free for all youths resident in 
Andover under the restrictions of the trustees as to age and 
qualifications : no sectarian influence to be used in the school : 
the Bible to be in daily use and the Lord's prayer in which 
the pupils shall join audibly with the teacher in the morning 
at the opening : the said trustees to have the sole direction 
and power also to determine and decide whether the school 
shall be for males only or for the benefit of both sexes : said 
school to be located in the South Parish of Andover but free 
for all the Parishes equally." Under other provisions of the 
will other moneys have come to the Town for the same pur- 
pose so that the trust fund is now about seventy-five thou- 
sand dollars. The eight trustees, three designated in 
the will and five chosen by the Town were by Chapter 7 
of the Acts of 1851 made a corporation under the name of 
the Trustees of the Punchard Free School. By this Act 
" the possession, control and management of the fund be- 
queathed to the Town of Andover by said will in the cor- 
porate name of said Trustees for the purposes and uses 
therein expressed is hereby confirmed to said trustees and 



135 

their successors forever " and the corporation is to " exer- 
cise all the powers and perform all the duties " given to and 
imposed upon the trustees by the will. The provisions of 
the Punchard Will and the question of the authority of the 
Town in this matter came before the Supreme Judicial 
Court in 1869 in the case of Jenkins vs. Andover, 103 Mass., 
94. It was in this case decided that this School is designed 
to stand for the Town of Andover as a part of the system 
of common school education ; that money raised by taxation 
for its support would be money raised for the support of 
public schools, that the school is not under the control of the 
Town authorities, that money raised by taxation for the sup- 
port of common schools cannot be applied to the support of 
this school and that the "Statute of 1869, Chapter 396 is un- 
constitutional and invalid so far as it purports to authorize 
the Town of Andover to raise by taxation and appropriate 
money to aid the trustees of the Punchard Free School to 
build a school house to be used and occupied in place of a 
high school for said Town and to aid in defraying the annual 
expenses of said school." Any arrangement between the 
town and the trustees cannot therefore include the appropri- 
ation to the support of the Punchard Free School of any 
money raised by taxation. The terms of the 6th clause of 
the Punchard Will as to the character and management of 
the school are broad and general and deal very little with 
matters of detail. The limitations that the law will place 
upon the powers of the trustees are more elastic than those 
affecting the town. The income of the trust fund is not 
now sufficient to alone support such a school as has hereto- 
fore been maintained or such as the town needs and desires. 
A school must, however, be maintained by the trustees "free 
for all youths resident in Andover" and such as is required 
by the not very numerous provisions of the will. 

The terms of the trust must be substantially complied 
with and the purpose of the will essentially carried out. 
Keeping within these general requirements the trustees 



136 

would have a great deal of latitude as to details. By Chap- 
ter 77 of the Acts of 1856 the Town is relieved from th 
necessity of maintaining a high school but the same act re- 
serves to the town the right to establish one if it shall vote 
to do so. The Town cannot appropriate money to aid in 
supporting a school managed by the Trustees and the 
Trustees have not the right to turn their income over to the 
Town or its school committee to be expended for the sup- 
port of a school managed by the Town authorities. A 
solution of the difficulty would be found if the Town should 
establish a High school and the Trustees coutinue to main- 
tain a school, the branches to be taught being apportioned 
between the two schools so that they may together furnish 
all desirable instruction. Such a course Isfeasible ande 
justifiable both from the standpoint of the Town and that of 
the Trustees. The fact that a majority of,<the trustees are 
elected by the Town makes it Improbable that there would 
be any difficulty in carrying out such an arrangement. 
There is no reason why 1 1 1 * - same persons might not be 
elected trustees and members of the school committee, win- 
Hie same persons might not be teachers in the two schools 
or the two schools occupy the same building. The same 
person could and naturally and for mutual convenience 
would be chosen head master by the ScIiomI Committee, and 
employed by the Punchard Trustees as their head master. 
The two schools would go on together and virtually consti- 
tute one school. 

The provisions of Public Statutes, Chapter 14. Section 2, as 
to subjects required to be taught in high schools and those 
which may be taught but are not compulsory would make it 
easy to apportion the branches of study and teachers between 
the two schools. Salaries of teachers employed in both 
schools could be adjusted with consideration of the fact of 
such joint employment. Relieving the Town from the ex- 
pense of instruction in certain branches would be a fair com- 
pensation for the use by the trustees' school of the school- 



137 

house owned by the Town and justify the Town in permitting 
such use. 

The provisions Jof the will and those of Public Statutes, 
Chapter 44, Section 32, as to the use of the Bible are not 
materially different.

Report of the Sub-Committee 

The sub-committee appointed to take legal advice in their 
consideration of the relations between the Punchard Free 
School and the Town of Andover beg leave to report that 
they have consulted Judge Henry Wardwell of Salem and 
have received from him an opinion herewith presented in full. 
This opinion advises the maintenance of two schools, one to 
be established, maintained and directed by the Town of And- 
over and the other maintained and directed by the trustees 
of the Punchard will ; that the two aim, not to compete with, 
but to supplement each other so that the result will be to fur- 
nish to the town the educational facilities of a well equipped 
high school ; and that the sources of instruction and the ap- 
pointment of teachers be arranged by mutual agreement. 
The opinion also suggests that the salary of one or more of 
the teachers in such schools be paid in part by the trustees 
and in part by the Town. 

Your committee are pleased to find that the course which 
they recommended before taking legal advice is thus con- 
firmed by the opinion of Judge Wardwell. They therefore 
make the following recommendations : 

That a high school, to be called the Punchard High School, 
be established and maintained by the Town of Andover un- 
der the direction of its school committee. 

That the course of instruction in this school be so ar- 
ranged as to embrace the major part of the studies necessary 



138 

for pupils proposing to pursue their education in more ad- 
vanced institutions of learning and to embrace the literary 
study regarded as necessary for those desiring a high school 
course only. 

That the trustees of the Punchard will as heretofore main- 
tain and direct the Punchard Free*School. That its course 
of instruction be so arranged as^to embrace the mathematical 
and scientific study requisite for higher institutions and in 
addition such courses in manual training and in preparation 
for business as may be necessary in a well equipped high 
school. 

That each school accept the certificate of the other in case 
of studies which it does not itself teach and that such certifi- 
cates shall be countedHowards a diploma as if given by the 
school granting the diploma. And that the number of cour- 
ses and the marks in eacli course requisite for a diploma be 
the same in both. 

That the two schools at the beginning may well employ 
seven teachers ; of whom three assistant teachers or their 
equivalent may be emploved by the Town School Com- 
mittee and three by the trustees. That in case the two par- 
ties, the school committee and the trustees, agree upon the 
same person as head master his salary shall be paid in equal 
proportions bj each, but in case of failure to agree each 
party shall be at liberty to withdraw from this arrangement 
and conduct its school independently of the other, and either 
party may withdraw at any time by giving notice to the 
other on or before the first day of February in any year but 
the separation shall take place only at the end of a school 
year. 

That the plan here proposed be carried into operation at 
the beginning of the school year next September ; and that 
the Town be requested to appropriate sufficient money to 
carry this plan into operation. That in accordance with the 
recommendation of Judge Ward well the suggestion be made 
to the Town that one or more of the Trustees might well be 



139 

elected to the School Committee. These recommendations 
your committee present. And further in order to exhibit 
the line of division which they deem desirable they suggest 
the following list of studies for each school. 

PUNCHARD HIGH SCHOOL 

Latin, Greek, English (Literature and Composition), 
French, German, History (of the United States, Greek, Ro- 
man, General), History and Theory of Government, Draw- 
ing (Free hand and Mechanical), Music. 

PUNCHARD FREE SCHOOL 

Algebra, Geometry, Book-keeping, Botany, Chemistry, 
Physics, Manual Training, Cooking, Sewing, Stenography, 
Type-writing, Business Arithmetic, Business Law. 

Your committee present this sketch of two schools work- 
ing each on an independent basis but with a common aim, 
not imagining that it is complete in its details, recognizing 
that manv modifications will be lound necessary when in op- 
eration, but believing that it affords a ground for a legal and 
satisfactory agreement between the Trustees of the Punchard 
will and the Town of Andover.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of the Town of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works herewith submits its third an- 
nual report embracing the thirteenth annual report of Water 
Commissioners and fifth annual report of Sewer Commis- 
sioners for the year ending Jan. 15, 1902. 

42 buildings were connected with the sewer this year, 
making a total to date of 321. 

Cost of sewer maintenance, $828 79 

Cost of sewers to plate, $122,245.94 

Sewer bonds outstanding, $125,000 00 

Amount of sinking fund, $40,458 66 

With the exception of a short line of pipe laid on Porter 
street, no new work has been done, yet with the regular du- 
ties of this Board and the frequent calls for engineering work 
aside from this has kept the superintendent and his small 
force of men busy through the year. The whole system and 
its workings have thus far been entirely satisfactory, but all 
systems require more or less watchfulness and care to keep 
them in good running order. 

The filter beds are all right and have given no particular 
trouble, and they are in some respects in better shape than 
ever. 

Early last spring the waterpipe under Roger's brook was 
found to be broken (caused by the settling of the culvert) 
and in making preparations for its removal the whole cul- 
vert was found in such a dilapidated shape that it was ap- 
parent that something should be done to put it in fair con- 



dition. In consultation with the authorities most interested, 
it was deemed advisable to rebuild the whole culvert at the 
time, rather than make temporary repairs with the prospect 
in view of soon being obliged to do it. With the approval of 
the Board of Selectmen and Superintendent of Streets, the 
work was commenced by this board. 

In order to relieve the overflow at certain times of the 
year, the water course was widened to six feet and the foun- 
dations and walls lowered about four and one-half feet, so 
that when the time comes to lower the bed of the brook, it 
can be done without interfering with this culvert. The 
sewer and water pipes were lowered to correspond. The fre- 
quent and heavy rains which occurred at this time impeded 
the work and added materially to the cost which thus far has 
been borne by this department. 

It was found that the pump in the pump house near Shaw- 
shin River would freeze in winter and that it would be nec- 
esssary to keep a fire to prevent it, so the house was removed, 
the pump put under ground, similar to the one on Phillips 
street, thus saving the cost of fuel to heat and the services of 
a man to look after it. 

WATER SYSTEM. 

Received from water rates, $8941.83 

Net cost of maintenance, 7955.34 

Number of applications for water this year 21 

Number of service pipes put in, 21 

Number of service pipes now in use, 896 

Water bonds outstanding, $140,000.00 

Cost of system to date, $209,586.39 

Amount of sinking fund, 10,422.48 

Owing to the adoption of new water rates, which took ef- 
fect Jan. 1st of this year, the receipts are less than the year 
previous, but next year they will come up to the former 
amount. Formerly this sum included advance payments 
which the new rates do not require. In future all bills will 



be rendered quarterly for water actually used, and this 
change we think will be more satisfactory to all concerned. 

A new boiler was purchased and placed in position in the 
early summer, the cost including setting was about $ 1800. 

At the last annual meeting your Board was authorized to 
apply to the legislature for permission to issue more water 
bonds. Application was made soon after and the request 
granted, but it being quite late in the season when notice was 
received, so late that the work contemplated could not have 
been finished before cold weather, it was not thought advis- 
able to call an extra town meeting to authorize their issue, 
this matter will however be submitted to the town at the an- 
nual meeting, and if authority is given, part of the bonds 
will be issued and sold and the proceeds used to make some 
short extensions, but more particularly to carry out the prop- 
osition referred to in our last report, in regard to relieving 
the pump in some manner at the time of year when a large 
amount of water is being used. 

The great friction encountered through the long line of 
pipe through which the water is pumped to the reservoir 
makes a great difference in the amount of water discharged 
there through the day. The pump is already doing about 
all that the safety of the present line will admit. 

To obviate the necessity of running the pump at night 
which would require additional help, it is proposed to tap the 
force main near the station or at Barnard's corner and run 
an 8 inch or 10 inch pipe to Ballardvale, this would not only 
relieve the pump, which under these circumstances could be 
made to do more work bat would give an additional line to 
the reservoir which could be utilized in case of accident to the 
main lino to still keep a supply in the reservoir sufficient for 
all purposes This line will cost from $15,000 to $17,000, 
according to the size of pipe used and which route is taken. 

The bad taste in the water late in the summer, subjected 
your board to considerable annoyance and extra expense in 
trying to remedy it. The water was drawn from the reser- 



6 

voir and the basin cleaned, the main pipes flushed and a 
diver was employed to examine the crib and suction pipe, 
(both of which were found in good condition). A filter was 
built across the brook in Bailey's meadow and numerous 
other things done which were thought at the time might be 
of some benefit ; fortunately this condition of things did not 
last long and we have been assured by the State Board that 
although the taste was disagreeable, there was nothing in the 
water that was deleterious in the least degree. 

This trouble cost at least five hundred dollars and as the 
appropriation for maintenance was reduced last spring a like 
amount, it was found that our funds were exhausted and that 
we should need one thousand dollars more to pay help and 
incidental expenses for the remainder of the year. 

The town was asked at a special meeting held in Septem- 
ber, to authorize the Treasurer to transfer one thousand dol- 
lars from the receipts of water rates to the waterworks main- 
tenance account, and it was so voted. 

The maintenance account includes all bills and ordinary 
expenses incurred for work done in this department except- 
ing construction. 

All office and incidental expenses which embraces this 
year about two months' service of the Superintendent and 
his helper, while engaged in outside work as engineers in con- 
nection with the electric R. R., on Main street and various 
other places.

In addition to the ordinary maintenance of the works and 
construction as above, the following work has been done by 
this department : 

The entire system of water pipes has been flushed and the 
reservoir has been cleaned. A filter basin has been built on 
one of the brooks flowing into Haggett's pond. An oil sep- 
arating device has been constructed on the outboard delivery 
pipe from the vacuum pumps. Boiler No. 1 has been re- 
placed by a 66 inch horizontal tubular boiler. A brick cul- 
vert 6 by 7 feet was built at Roger's Brook on Chestnut street 
and the water pipe, sewer and underdrain lowered at that 
point. The sewer pump house on Main street has been torn 
down and an underground house built. Owing to alteration 
of Main street caused by the laying of double tracks, four ser- 
vice pipes, three hydrants and seven sewer manholes were 
changed. A larger amount of engineering has been done for 
other departments during the past year than ever before. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
